CLIFF is the current focus of my work and is based on sketches, photos of the cliff face. These reveal the layers of time which would normally be inaccessible to the eye but underfoot. They show evidence of erosion; by natural forces, by man, by animals that use them as their home and the recent colonisation of plants.


They demonstrate the large array of the colours of sand, earth and captured objects like stones or roots on the cliff face. Also the varying textural qualities and weights of the surface from light crumbling sand to more robust strata of clay and stone.


When the research images I produce are isolated and cropped they display superb abstract qualities; these then become the inspiration for the artwork.
